look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance - Clear and pale gold in color. Developed approximately a 1-1/2", off-white head that dissipated quickly.
Smell - Very mellow, floral hop notes. Biscuity malt aroma as well in the background.
Taste - As with the smell, a very mellow hop character with a balanced malt backbone. Not a ton of depth in the flavor profile.
Mouthfeel - Medium weight on the mouthfeel but refreshing.
Overall - It's a decent beer. Would prefer something with a little more complexity but I could see me reaching for one of these on a warm summer day.

Dark golden body with a foamy head.
aroma is of hops and some malt.
The taste has a little bitter hops taste and is balanced by the malt
overall it is tasty

Looking for a freshness date after half the bottle and I can't find one. Could the hops have died down THAT much? Well where's the date?! Could this bottle be THAT old? Well, again, where's the god damn date?! I have no idea, but the hops are just not there at all. This is more malt than anything to me and I have a feeling I just have an old, old, bottle but nonetheless. This was a pretty disappointing offering from Brooklyn for me. I'll only be seeking this out again to find out if this is a truly disappointing beer or if I got a bad bottle. Bummed for sure at the moment though.
